As you probably know, I prefer fruits to vegetables, so this is a great salad to me! It’s an easy and versatile recipe that would pair well with many mains. The grapefruit really brightens it up, and the pistachios provide a great nutty texture. Scroll down for pictures, hope you enjoy! Continue reading
Coleslaw goes hand-in-hand with barbecues, so this is the perfect time of year to share this recipe – especially with this being a long weekend! This coleslaw is tangy and creamy, and the longer you let it sit, the better it gets. Hope you enjoy!
I don’t often post salads, so when I do you know it’s good! I got a sneak peak of some recipes of dishes that will be at Taste of Toronto this week, and this one stood out. I tweaked it just a bit to better suit the home cook. It is a great, garlicky Caesar salad with a twist that will make you want seconds. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
Spring has sprung and so had salad season! Well, not that salad has a season, but I find that when Spring comes I’m just more excited about vegetables and salads (as excited as I can be about them, salads have nothing on cookies). This is a great salad, it’s got the right combination of flavours and textures, and makes very tasty leftovers. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
I’m a ‘carbivore’ (yes I made that word up), I love carbs and will eat them any way possible. So when I found this recipe that claimed to be as good as the restaurant version, I had to try it – and I’m glad I did! Bread can be tricky to make, but this recipe creates a fluffy and versatile breadstick that is definitely worth your time. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
As I’ve said before, I’m not great with vegetables, so I’m always trying new dishes in hopes that that way will make me want more of that vegetable. I discovered fried cauliflower with tahina and loved it, so when I found this recipe for a baked version I was really excited. It’s super simple but really delicious, hope you enjoy!
I’ve been eyeing this recipe ever since got Barefoot Contessa’s Back to Basics cookbook, and when I finally made it I was not disappointed! Roasting the tomatoes for two hours really concentrates their flavour, making them rich and the salad delicious. With the festive colours in the salad I thought this would be a great time to share it, hope you enjoy! Continue reading
I’m always open to trying new foods, and my ever-present curiosity often results in interesting ‘I do not like this’ faces. Recently, my mom made a cauliflower side dish and the dressing smelt so good that I decided to brave the strange vegetable again…and I liked it! While my feelings towards the undressed version of the colourless cousin of broccoli haven’t changed, Continue reading
Green beans are on the small list of vegetables that I eat, I promise I’m working on expanding it Nana! These green beans are super easy and tasty, and go well with lots. Apologies for the lack of photos, I’ll add more next time I make them but I was focused on the main, the Satisfying Onion and Goat Cheese Frittata. Continue reading
I’m sure the scenario of your grandmother trying to convince you to eat your vegetables when you were little sounds quite familiar. I’m also sure that the thought of a vegetable like Brussels sprouts doesn’t usually produce a mouth watering sensation. Both of these sentiments are grounds for thinking that this recipe is one of the the last things you’d think I would post here, but I promise it’s worth it.
I am the first to admit that I’m not good with vegetables, and, until very recently, Brussels sprouts were definitely on my ‘Not’ list. Continue reading
